Twist Style Friday: Roxton

Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.


 

 


Happy Friday folks!! Yesterday in Toronto the weather took a decidedly chilly turn, and although I have many people in my life who are lamenting the end of summertime, I have to admit that I was thrilled. I wore floral tights and a hot pink lacy scarf (knitted, of course) and a denim jacket and felt pretty darn blissful about the temperature. I am looking forward to fingerless gloves and toques and wool sweater times. Plus all I want to do is knit. 

 

In a total departure from my usual knitting MO, I have been really wanting to knit a pullover! It could be because there are so many gorgeous ones in our new issue. I'm feeling very torn between starting with Ravenscrag, Paria, or today's feature garment, Roxton. How will I possibly decide?? 

 

Let's take a close look at Roxton, shall we?

This aran weight sweater has a serious squish factor, but the dropped stitch and lace patterning keeps the whole thing feeling light and breezy. The lacy panels deserve another glance.

You could toss this on over jeans and boots and look amazing on every chilly day mother nature can throw at you. Or you could take my advice, and wear it with something sharp.

I kept all the accessories and other garments crisp, clean, and graphic. Maybe people won't know where to look first, and the interesting cutouts on your shoes, the bold patterning of your pants/skirt, or the juicy sweater that tops it off. Maybe that's awesome. 

 

How will you wear Roxton
